Gabi goes solo with a very strange and addictive effort.Conny Plank, one of DAF trademarks , is the producer of this hybrid stuff, melting synthetic pop and live funk, for a kind of "exotic" concept . It is sweaty, it is spooky, it is unique. i bought this in 1984 and still shivers when listening . Ill fanfare sounds, brazilian guitars, afro-cuban percussions, luscious female backing vocals, slapped bass, gabi singing in english, spanish, sexier than ever.
highlight: the tittle track "Mistress".

It took me more than a few listens to really appreciate this album. Upon first listen, it seemed a very hastily put together, poorly thought-out, sub-par DAF spin-off. The production is not as immediately deep or engrossing as most of Conny Plank's contemporaneous material, and it seems like a failed pop-crossover attempt.
After letting it marinate for several months, I took the record out again, and quickly grew to enjoy it - it's almost like DAF trying to cover Kid Creole songs. Grating sine-waves, synthesized steel drums, furious funk basslines, and joyous horn outbursts collide in some weird tropical cyber-utopia. There are some duds, and some failed experiments, but the record is certainly underrated.
